Richard Ouellette has over 20 years experience in all sectors of design, including fashion, styling, event planning and interior design. Early in his career, he distinguished himself by becoming one of the youngest recipients of the Griffe d'or for his fashion designs. Subsequently, he immersed himself in the world of industrial and urban design. After studying environmental design at the Université du Québec à Montréal, he worked in styling and graphic design as a project manager at an advertising agency. Then, in 2004, he found his true calling as an interior designer. He joined Les Ensembliers as a design partner in 2007. In 2011, he was recognized in Quebec as one of the leaders in his field. His extensive and multidisciplinary design experience with materials, objects, atmospheres and spaces has led him to become a master of his craft, taking the helm of Les Ensembliers as president in 2012. The firm has been featured as one of only 96 global design firms in the prestigious Andrew Martin Interior Design Review 2015, dubbed by the Sunday Times as "the Oscars for the interior design world."
